Joao Felix plays down summer Manchester United links

Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix was strongly linked with a move to Manchester United during the summer transfer window. There were even reports claiming the 20-time English champions submitted a whopping €130 million offer for his services, only see it rejected without a second’s thought.

In an exclusive interview with Spanish publication Marca, the 22-year-old was asked whether he had even considered making the switch, but he simply said that no actual offer ever reached him and pointed out that he remains an Atletico Madrid player.

Felix joined the Rojiblancos from Benfica in 2019 for close to what Manchester United are believed to have offered this year. Since then, he’s gone on to score 29 goals and produce 18 assists in 116 matches for Diego Simeone’s team, helping them win the La Liga title in 2020/21.

The 22-cap Portugal international also spoke about his national team, praising the quality they have in all areas on the pitch. On whether he’d go on to win the Ballon d’Or in the future, he said there was a lot of room for improvement still, that he intended to work hard and see where it takes him in the future.
